we'd like to call it the ultimate guide to beating traffic or not. >> we are going to begin with that chicago police officer charged with murdering a teenager firing 16 shots in 15 seconds. protesters filled the streets shutting down traffic after dash cam video and the victim's family pleaded for calm. alex perez is on the scene in chicago. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. investigators say that officer opened fire seconds after he got on the scene. that video only made public now because a judge ordered it be released. this morning, newly released dash cam video giving us a closer look at the chilling moment chicago police officer jason van dyke emptied his 9 millimeter gun on 17-year-old laquan mcdonald. we will freeze the video here. mcdonald died on his way to the hospital. >> it is violent. it is chilling. >> reporter: cook county state attorney anita alvarez charging him with first degree murder and
his attorney refusing to answer questions, only saying -- >> this is not a murder case despite what you heard in the courtroom. >> reporter: the shooting took place on october 20th, 2014. 9:47 p.m., police responding to a call of a suspect with a knife breaking into cars and walking down the street tracked mcdonald down. ten minutes later officer van dyke, authorities say, opens fire after mcdonald collapses, prosecutors say van dyke kept firing 16 bullets in 15 seconds. another officer can then be seen kicking that knife away from mcdonald's body but the teenager investigator said he never threatened the officers. overnight demonstrators are taking to the streets of chicago confronting police outside this station. >> all: 16 shots. 16 shots. >> reporter: and now with community tension building the city's top brass on edge. >> jason van dyke will be judged in a court of law, that's exactly how it should be.
>> reporter: and van dyke is being held without bond. his attorney argues he fired his weapon because he feared for his life. the mcdonald family has reached a $5 million settlement with the city. george. >> okay, alex, thanks very much. more from our legal analyst dan abrams. the shooting more than a year ago, the prosecution just a couple of days ago. >> and the prosecutor's basically saying these cases are complicated. they can take over a year. both those things are true but when you have this video with this many shots and you have the prosecutor now admitting that she moves forward the announcement of the charges because of the video, it is a completely fair question to ask, why did it take so long? >> we saw the preview of the defense right there. they say the officer feared for his life. >> the legal standard is would a reasonable police officer have felt in danger? doesn't mean he had to have been in danger but would a reasonable police officer have felt that way? of course, the challenge here is going to be because he didn't have a gun, it turns out and
most importantly the distance he was from the officer, there's no indication that he's running towards the officer, et cetera. you listen to the defense attorney and he keeps saying again and again this did not a murder case, which to me says this is the defense attorney who is looking for a lesser included. >> lesser charge and how much difference does it make the boy did not have a gun as you said but he was not unarmed, had that knife. >> critical because of the distance between them meaning if he had a gun there could always be the threat of a shot. as it turns out he had the knife in his hand without moving towards him, tough, tough defense. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> such distance between -- >> crucial point. >> extreme outrage but, again, the teen's family is urging protesters -- >> they didn't even want the video released. >> thank you, dan. now to the holiday travel rush threatening to make the trip home a mess for millions of americans. people are already heading out. that's a live look at the highway nearby, newark, new

americans to be vigilant in public places and when using transportation, the tsa says it's ready for the influx and they screen 40% more people over thanksgiving and abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with more on this heightened state of security. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. we have seen that security, the additional tsa officers and police officers as well who guard airports and a lot of canine units moving through the lines and sniffing the passengers as they are checked here. you mentioned 40% more passengers coming through between today and sunday, the airlines say that 10 million americans will fly. and, george, the good news so far there have been no major delays in the airline system. >> but you still got to get there early. >> reporter: yeah, actually the airlines and tsa are saying because so many more people are coming through and this heightened awareness about terror that you should arrive two hours before your flight and make sure you get on and get to where you want to go. >> david kerley, thanks very much. >> as i always say, pack a lot of patience. that's what you should pack.

northern syria. turkey says the russian pilots were warned ten times in five minutes before being fired upon. >> this is a very, very quick intercept. it was only 17 seconds that this russian airplane was in turkish airspace. in that time the turkish f-16 pilot was ready on the trigger. >> reporter: the russian pilots ejecting, parachutes deploying. as they fall they reportedly come under heavy gunfire from syrian rebels which is when one of the pilots was killed. russia says its warplane was conducting bombing runs in syria but turkey says the jet crossed its border flying over this sliver of turkish airspace less than two miles wide. a stern vladimir putin calling turkey's action a stab in the back by the terrorists' accomplices. >> there's going to be a lot of posturing but it's going to be a question of how far the russians take the next step. are they really going to do something in retaliation or let it blow over -- understanding that their crews did in fact --
>> reporter: russian's foreign minister has strong words for turkey saying we have serious doubts that it was an unpremeditated attack adding russia can't let it go without a response. >> strong words. amy with the other morning's top stories starting with new questions about air bag safety? >> that's right. takata facing a record fine now faces a new accusation according to internal documents cited by "the wall street journal" it manipulated test results for more than a decade to hide failures in inflaters that can explode. they're now blamed for eight deaths and millions of vehicles have been recalled. in philadelphia, a teenager is behind bars after a police pursuit ended in a fiery crash with a school bus. police say the 17-year-old shot got into a gun fight. he's accused of shooting a trooper in the shoulder. another man was arrested and several others escaped. the hilton hotel chain is warning customers about a

>> you better do a good job or you're fired. >> and while her father runs for president, she and her brothers are manning the family business. >> and today we're shovel ready. >> what's a day in the life of ivanka trump? >> every day brings new opportunities in my work at the trump organization. we're opening a project in rio de janeiro and one in vancouver and an iconic project on pennsylvania avenue in washington, d.c. >> do you have a favorite part? >> the design and construction. i love it all and now obviously i have my own brand and here in my offices of ivanka trump which is my lifestyle collection. >> i started this company for women who inspire me. it's chic, sophisticated and solution oriented. >> i love when you came up with this concept a year ago, #womenwhowork. >> we created an amazing community of women who are celebrating and supporting each other and really advocating for this multidimensional life. we want to be mothers, we want to be sisters, we're training for marathons and learning how
to garden. the goal is to change this narrative and to be a part of it. >> and always at the center of ivanka's narrative, her family. she's expecting another baby this spring. what's thanksgiving going to be like in the ivanka trump house? >> it's going to be chaotic. we're going down to florida, so all of us will be at mar lago. i'll be with my father. >> what's on the menu? >> traditional. of course. big turkey, gets bigger every year as the family grows. >> it's huge. >> huge. >> huge. >> huge standing ovation. >> it's pretty huge. now i'm self-conscious about that word, of course. now i'm very self-conscious about the word huge. >> and for more on ivanka's initiative, women who work, you can go to goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! ginger, we're women who work, so work it, girl. >> yeah, i will right over here. i'm not afraid of huge because we're going to use that word right now talking about the waves around seattle and washington. look at these huge waves that were crashing up onto the shore. the king tide plus that
windstorm moving through and now that storm going to meet up with the remnants of what is right now hurricane sandra. all that moisture pooling up and from parts of illinois back through texas, we're on flash flood watch. some of the rain totals locally in parts of oklahoma, arkansas or texas could go upwards of 8 inches. that's the big pictu >> , i am meteorologist mike nicco with the forecast. mostly sunny and chilly and ben dry on the way. that means cold mights and frost in the inland valleys. cooler-than-average, lows and highs through the weekend. today we go from 54 in livermore for veil in oakland. tonight, look at the 30s but for richmond and oakland and san mateo and san francisco. my seven-day forecast shows it will be difficult through saturday. >> it is so quiet down here without y'all. we got to get back upstairs with the party. >> all right, yeah, get up here with your mirror ball, please, ginger. we're going to start "pop news" with a check in on our "gma" road trip challenge. we're trying to help you find
the best way to get out of dodge for the holidays. what system works best? we had three teams leave fairfield, connecticut, about an hour ago using different navigation methods. sara went old school with just a map, and then t.j. used waze and rob marciano used the sort of gps system that comes in your rental car, which is not an app and doesn't update you with different routes, so as i understand it, sara is beating with the map, with the good old old-school map. sara in first, t.j. is in second. poor rob with the gps. we need to check in with him. rob, i understand you had to make a little pit stop. >> yeah, that would be nice but we're in last place so that's not going to happen. our gps took us to i-95, never a good idea when you have the choice to take the merit. we've hit some traffic and now it wants to take us to the east side of manhattan and drive crosstown during rush hour. we're never going to get there at this rate. i think maybe the hard core map would have been the best way to
go, guys. we're having a good time. >> sometimes the classics. >> just using right up here and knowing what's busy at what time. >> it doesn't surprise me what happened to rob. i'm telling you the gps in the car always does that. >> yeah. >> it creates great discussion inside the car. listen to the gps. no. >> but i thought waze would be the one because i've gotten great success with that. >> waze usually works best for me. >> sometimes they take you on these crazy routes to divert a little bit. >> which is really great, so t.j. has that and sara has good old common sense looking at her map and seeing the most direct route, and it's working. so, consider the source. we'll check back in with them and find out if rob ever gets here, and we continue with "pop news," and queen elizabeth, you guys, she is turning 90 years old this coming april. and you're invited to the party, people. 25,000 of us at least can go, hobnob with harry and the other royals at the four-day royal event that will take place in may at windsor castle. 1500 performers will be there.
900 horses putting on a show. the tickets are selling fast through the windsor information center. the cost, $83 and then, of course, a fabulous fascinator, which, robin, you and i know is a must at all royal affairs. not so bad. i don't know you'll actually get very close to the royals, but you can say you were at the queen's birthday party. sort of like you and i were at the queen's jubilee. really far. i thought i could see her from the distance. >> not so much. >> but it's a royal affair and happy birthday to the queen, going strong. then also in "pop news," we've found the perfect stocking stuffer if you're planning on doing a little shopping this weekend. this one is for bacon lovers, the world's first underwear that looks and smells like bacon. it's described as the ultimate in comfort and cured meat. each pair handcrafted in the u.s. of "a." >> we have children in the audience. >> a real item. they come in boxers and briefs, designed to embed the smell of breakfast in your pants.
the scent will last through multiple wash cycles. the underwear does come with a unique warning and, guys, this is not a joke, the makers advise the garment is not recommended for use by mail carriers, zookeepers or lion tamers. i just would like to say before you all send me your messages and get mad at me, guess where i found this story? >> george? >> i got the e-mail yesterday. i can't believe she put it on the air. >> george sent it to me and said, would you want this for "pop news"? i was like, would i ever? >> now we know. >> thank you, george. >> you're welcome, america. >> hey, pitbull, where will the party be on black friday morning? >> good morning, america. >> friday, pitbull ignites the morning on "gma" presented by carmax.
good morning. i'm kristen sze. right over for a quick look at your pre-thanksgiving day travel. >> take a look at the bridge, kristen. pre-holiday light. nobody headed into san francisco at this hour, or very few cars, i should say. no delays but a couple problem spots. first take you to southbound 880 at fruitvale. a couple of cars stacked up there in lanes. so now if you're headed to the oakland airport you may be finding delays now at southbound 880 at fruitvale, back towards oakland and 980. give yourself plenty of time. debris at edgewood scattered across all lanes. people slowing and
welcome back top camera's an indication, you need sunglasses later heading up to tahoe. snow falling through noon and tapering rapidly. a check that said all major highways and interstates need chains. be careful, headed up to that. the grapevine, snow falls but will melt when it hits the ground. as far as what will happen today, mostly sunny, dry air.

who's teaching students invaluable life lessons on and off the field. the pizza store owner who came up with a unique recipe for feeding those in need. and so we were wondering about the unsung heroes who inspired us and who we honored last year, remember, on thanksgiving, that holiday special. one year later we check back in for an update. last thanksgiving, we met some incredible people doing amazing things in their communities. mr. v., a dedicated teacher who empowers his students through music teaching them to dream big and believe in themselves. >> i love them. i want them to know that i always have their back and anything they need i'm always there for them. >> his dream for the drum line, to see them march in the national independence day parade in washington, d.c. >> can we cue the drum line?

ono off-days, or downtime.ason. than the first time. winning with bindi is incredible. >> announcer: this is an abc news special report. now reporting, george stephanopoulos. and we are coming on the air before this thanksgiving holiday because president obama has just met with his national security team. he's about to make a statement on the steps he's taking to protect americans from the threat posed by isis. in the wake of the paris terror
attacks, the white house said they know of no specific and credible threat but the state department has issued a global alert for americans traveling abroa abro abroad. pierre thomas tracking it. what exactly is contained in these bulletins? >> reporter: as you say, no specific credible threat to the homeland, but they lay out that there are a pool of people here who are isis sympathizers who could try copy cat attacks. so law enforcement is being told by the fbi and homeland security to be vigilant, to look for anything suspicious and to act on all credible leads. >> jon karl, we've seen more forceful rhetoric from the president this week. >> reporter: we saw him standing next to president hollande from france saying that isis will be defeated. he acknowledged that this group poses a serious threat to all of us but he said make no mistake, we will win, they will lose. much tougher rhetoric, george, but still no significantly different strategy towards defeating isis. >> that's right. the president has still ruled out ground troops, will not use
u.s. ground troops in the fight against isis and the french have also done the same. the u.s. strategy, the coalition strategy complicated by the shootdown of that russian plane in turkey. the president has just met with his national security team in the situation room of the white house. they've gone through many of the steps that are already being taken to protect the homeland from this threat posed by isis, the most serious threat so far, copy cats here in the united states, inspired by isis. and french authorities continuing to investigate those terror attacks now 11 days ago in france. one of the suspects still at large as the french and the belgians have cracked down hard on terror networks in both belgium and across france. states of emergency across the country of france. right now 130 people killed in that terror attack 11 days ago.
pierre thomas, there are always enhanced vigilance around the holidays as well. >> reporter: indeed, george. i think what's different here is that you have such a spaight of activity in europe that you just pointed out, the attacks in paris, the russian planed that was downed in which isis claimed credit for that, the beirut bombings. law enforcement is mindful and quite frankly, they know the american public has been paying particular attention to what's been happening in europe. i spoke with the amtrak police chief yesterday and she talked about the fact that passengers are nervous. they know that the public is concerned, so you're seeing the president today. i think he will try to reassure the american public as he did yesterday. also we are told that homeland security secretary jeh johnson will hold a briefing today to do the same. >> long lines at airports across the today, today one of the busiest travel days of the year.
tsa and transportation security authority also saying travelers should try to get to the airport early, at least two hours ahead of their flights. jon karl, the shootdown of that russian plane by turkey, the russians saying they now believe it was a deliberate act. >> reporter: that's right. the big concern here at the white house is that this will lead to an escalation of the conflict. turkey, of course, is a n.a.t.o. ally. with the russians talking so strongly about the need to have serious consequences as a result of this shootdown, the concern is that it could spiral out of control. of course, the united states has been urged by france to work with the russians in the battle against isis in syria. that was the message that president hollande brought here. much harder to work with the russians when the russians are on the verge of potentially a conflict with one of our n.a.t.o. allies, the key to this fight. >> of course there's so much frustration with russia because
even though they've started their bombing campaign in syria, they seem to be going more at the moderate opposition to president assad than isis itself. >> reporter: according to the pentagon, the vast majority of the air strikes that russia has taken in syria have not been on isis target but on the opposition, including opposition groups that the united states has helped support and helped train. so a lot of frustration with russia. the message from the president yesterday is we are willing to work with the russians on this, but russia has to work with us on a political transition in syria and has to show that they are truly going after what is the threat here, the threat is isis, and long-term, the threat -- the real solution to the threat is a political transition to gets assad out of power. >> pierre thomas, for the last year homeland security officials have been telling you how fearful they are of the threat here in the united states and they've cracked down hard on americans seeking to travel to syria. >> reporter: they've arrested
more people who have tried to support isis. also they've uncovered a few plots in which people were planning to do harm to americans here inside the united states. i think the thing that they emphasize over and over is that isis, unlike al qaeda, has used social media to reach out to people on their smartphones, on their tablets, urging them to, as the fbi director said, kill, kill, kill. the concern is that some unstable, troubled person will take that message and finally act on it. i think that's why you're seeing so much additional security coming up to this thanksgiving holiday. in fact, all that spaight of terror in europe, as one official said couldn't have come at a worse time. this is the period of time in the u.s. when you have the most people out shopping, the most people at airports, the most people on trains. >> lone wolf is a big concern here, but that terror threat in paris turned out to be far more organized than people believed possible. >> reporter: exactly. law enforcement officials have
been pretty adamant this week that they have no evidence that isis has been able to export a cell like that inside the united states. they don't think they've been able to do that. again, they will also tell you they don't know what they don't know in terms of whether someone could have sneaked into this country, but they feel like the threat is primarily, again, people inside the united states who have been consuming the isis social media campaign who then might do the copy cat style attacks. >> and jon karl, even as the president's rhetoric has become more forceful this week, still no wholesale change in strategy and resisting the kind of moves called by others including his former secretary of state, hillary clinton, to impose a no-fly zone in syria. >> reporter: he's been explicit in saying that what he wants is an intensification of the strategy, not a change in strategy. even that intensification doesn't necessarily imply more u.s. effort. what they have talked about here at the white house is getting our european allies to be more forceful as a member of this coalition, going after isis in syria, but you don't see any
talk of anything more aggressive from the united states. the president has been explicit in ridiculing the idea of a no-fly zone. he points out that isis doesn't have an air force. this is one of the key planks of form secretary of state hillary clinton and something many republicans have called for, but the president's made it clear that is not something that he sees as advisable and certainly not something that he's going to do. >> this has become of course fodder on the campaign trail not only for secretary clinton but the republican candidates for president. but even though they're quite critical of president obama, only one, i believe lindsey graham, is calling for extensive ground troops right now in syria. >> reporter: that's right. most republican candidates said that they don't want to see a ground invasion of any kind from the united states. they have said though that it is a mistake for the president to come out and explicitly rule out any ground troops and when the president announced just a short while ago that they were sending 50 special operations forces into syria, this was an idea
that was criticized roundly by republican candidates as being laughably ineffective and potentially counter productive to have only 50 u.s. ground forces going into such a dangerous environment. >> and the president has also continued to speak out strongly, including yesterday with francois hollande, the french president, against the idea of those who are saying that we should put a pause button, put a hold on syrian refugees coming into the united states. >> reporter: and they've pointed out by the way that the french have not put a pause on syrian refugees. president hollande has made it clear that france will go forward with their plan to allow some 30,000 syrian refugees to come into france. the president has his plan to bring in some 10,000 to the united states and has made it clear despite any calls from congress, including some calls from some in his own party that that should be stopped, he says there is already thorough screening of all syrian refugees
coming into this country, far more than any other foreign travelers to the united states. they are not a threat, and he says it is our moral obligation to welcome at least some of the syrian refugees in the united states. >> pierre thomas, that is in contrast, any syrian refugee has to go through the united nations and then get some screening from the department of homeland security, but one of the bigger concerns now of homeland security officials is the possibility that potential terrorists could come in through europe on this veez va waiver program. you don't need a visa for most european countries. >> reporter: exactly. if you look at the so-called person who was behind these plots who helped develop the plot in paris, he was able to apparently go from syria and come back into france undetected. that's the issue. people from europe, france, great bring, other countries, could go into syria, come back, not be known, then travel to the united states. that's the serious problem given the high volume of people coming from europe to the united states
all the time. >> the other concern is that this cell which was quite elaborate organized in belgium, some travel back and forth from syria, was at times able to go dark and undetected, not only to travel undetected but to create these suicide vests, to organize themselves without the police catching any wind of it. >> reporter: right. it's not been officially confirmed yet but the dhs fbi bulletin that was put out yesterday did mention that they believe that one of the cell phones recovered in connection with those raid did have inkripgs on it. that allows terrorists to operate in the dark where law enforcement and intelligence would not be able to pick them up. huge, huge issue. george, i think the bottom line here is that law enforcement now knows that the terrorists have figured out that small scale attacks using handguns and rifles can do a lot of damage. >> apparently the president's meet with his national security team is going a bit longer than we expected. we're going to take a quit
